Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) Infrastructure – Demonstration Available: Enhanced situational awareness enables the Warfighter to make informed decisions fast – operating on the right information, at the right security level, in the right place, at the right time. The General Dynamics MDO Infrastructure provides a low SWaP (size, weight and power), ruggedized solution enabling the warfighter at any security level or branch of the United States military to execute missions with greater speed, confidence, and effect.

URC-300 Software-Defined Radio: The new URC-300™ Radio maximizes radio frequency (RF) performance and provides significantly improved ground-to-air communications. The URC-300 provides clear communications in highly congested environments and enables multiple radios to operate in close proximity to each other without interference. It features an easy-to-use, glove-friendly interface, and its versatile software-defined design enables future enhancements to be added via quick and easy field upgrades. The URC-300 supports many applications including air traffic control operations, emergency grab-and-go, manpack, vehicular and rackmount applications.

Small Form Factor Command & Control Node (SFF C2): As the “ready now” solution for Control and Reporting Center (CRC) modernization, the Small Form Factor Command and Control Node (SFF C2) capability provides the Air Force with virtualized, platform agnostic, deployable command and control nodes. Designed to military standards with battle-tested hardware capabilities, the SFF C2 integrates customer developed software architectures and proven enablers to scale to any mission need.

TACDS® - Tactical Cross Domain Solution: Effective and accessible communications to and from deployed soldiers is essential during multi-domain operations. TACDS brings safe and secure information sharing to the tactical edge. As a small size, weight and power (SWaP), tamper-resistant cross domain solution, TACDS is ideal for almost any vehicle, mobile shelter, ground sensor system, aircraft, UAV or soldier-worn application. Meeting NSA Phase 1 Raise the Bar requirements, TACDS brings security to mission communication between commanders and the battlefield across multiple forces and domains.

TACLANE®-Nano (KG-175N) Encryptor: Now NSA certified, the TACLANE-Nano is the smallest, lightest and most power efficient HAIPE® (High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor) available today. Designed with the latest in crypto modernization technology, TACLANE-Nano provides high assurance protection for voice, video and data classified up to Top Secret at 200 Mb/s aggregate throughput. It is MIL-STD-810G ruggedized to withstand the rigors of any mobile environment from backpack to flyaway kit to deployable systems and platforms.

ProtecD@R® Multi-Platform (KG-204) Encryptor: Now NSA certified, the ProtecD@R Multi-Platform encryptor provides high speed classified protection of stored data, preventing unauthorized access to classified information if the hard drives are lost or stolen. The latest in the line of ProtecD@R Data at Rest encryptors, the ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is the first Data at Rest encryptor NSA certified to protect information classified Top Secret and below and is approved for use in unmanned fixed and mobile operations.

Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS): General Dynamics Mission Systems has teamed with Dedrone, the market leader in airspace security, through a value-added reseller agreement, to integrate its mission-critical solutions with Dedrone’s drone detection and defeat technologies. The Dedrone C-UAS technology portfolio combines machine-learning software with best-in-class hardware sensors, electronic attack methods such as smart jamming, and defeat weapons to provide early warning, classification of, and mitigation against drone threats.

GPS Source APNT and GPS Data Transmission: Assured position, navigation and timing (APNT) and GPS signal retransmission solutions such as the SENTRySCOUT™ Assured Positioning, Navigation & Timing System, and ECHO-II GPS Repeater provide critical timing and position data in GPS denied and degraded environments. The SENTRySCOUT™ system, based on the U.S. Army's Mounted APNT System (MAPS GEN-1), provides validate and APNT data, independent of the availability or integrity of GPS signals. The core of the SENTRySCOUT™ system is the ED3 PNT Hub, widely utilized in a variety of ground vehicle applications. When GPS indoor transmission is the primary concern, the ECHO-II is a reliable signal repeater ideal for ground vehicles, aircraft, and buildings when time to first-fix is critical.

Sentinel® M-Code GPS Receiver: Provides Precise Positioning Service position, velocity, and time information for low Earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) applications. Medium Earth and high Earth orbits are also available. Performance and satellite visibility are enhanced with dual antennas; each of the 64 GPS channels can be assigned to either antenna. A few of the numerous benefits include GEO sidelobe acquisition and tracking algorithms to enable continuous position, navigation and timing availability, a fast acquisition processor affording rapid cold start capability, and integrated anti-jam technology and anti-spoof algorithms facilitating superior performance in GPS contested and denied environments.

Radomes: General Dynamics Mission Systems has successfully designed, produced and tested over 65,000 radomes to meet the needs of more than 50 different aircraft worldwide. Applications include fire control, electronic countermeasures, electronic warfare, weather and SATCOM. The radomes protect radar and antenna systems from physical damage while minimizing the impact to RF performance. Our wideband nose radomes are specifically designed to support Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) fire control radars on military aircraft including the F-15, F-16, F/A-18 and F-35. They provide superior performance by minimizing the impact over the much broader AESA frequency bands. Our SATCOM radomes are designed to operate over single or multiple frequency bands including X-, Ku-, K-, and Ka-.
